Prana Studios chooses PipelineFX’s Qube for Render Farming

One of Mumbai’s largest animation studios order 2,000 licenses for its short and feature film work


PipelineFX, makers of Qube, the leading render farm management software for digital content creation (DCC), announced last week that Mumbai-based animation powerhouse Prana Studios has chosen Qube to manage its growing 2,000 node render farm.

Prana Studios chose Qube after an extensive review of its internal pipeline suggested a need for an efficiency rendering tool that could also support their plans to expand their studio capacity in the coming years. Qube offered Prana proven scalability and performance on their large render farms, a true cross-platform compatibility on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux based servers and workstations, and advanced clustering to manage priorities for multiple shows in simultaneous production.

01 - Qube ArtistGUI shown here on Mac OS X, is a specific product for Qube oriented at the 3D artists segment of production.

“Every render pipeline has the capacity to become more powerful than it already is,” said PipelineFX CEO Richard Lewis. “Qube is how you get it there.”
